Problems and Recommendations
Elucidation of the biological effects of microwave exposure requires a careful review and critical analysis of the literature. This requires differentiating established effects and mechanisms from speculative and unsubstantiated reports. Most of the experimental data support the concept that the effects of microwave exposure are primarily, if not wholly, a response to hyperthermia or altered thermal gradients in the body. There are, nevertheless, large areas of confusion, uncertainty, and actual misinformation.
